In 2016 Maimoa knocked Justin Timberlake off the iTunes NZ Music Charts and now – in May 2017 – the creators of the hit song Maimoatia want to do it again.

Maimoa Music has released their first official single, Wairua, in Auckland in May of this yea.

Performed entirely in Te Reo it has had over 3 million views at the time of posting this link to it. Ka pai!


Wairua is a song encouraging ones belief in their natural instinct or spirit, we call ‘wairua’. At times of adversity and hardship, it’s that very natural instinct that will direct you. It’s by trusting in that ‘wairua’ you will reach your full potential, so let your ‘wairua’ soar… Maimoa Music is a collective of 12 young emerging Māori artists with an aspiration to inspire future generations.

An essence that isn’t truly felt until one opens up Once confronted by internal debate, a source of life and inspiration springs within you. A spring-well of instinct and a soul that is completely yours It is your SPIRIT – may it spread around the world It is your SOUL – let it fly and soar Filled with instinct and inspiration that can guide you to your full potential A little wairua is better than none at all, be it small or large – it is still a gift. Although it may not be tangible, it’s a connection blind to the naked eye Once confronted by internal debate, a source of life and inspiration springs within you. A spring-well of life and soul that is completely yours It is your SPIRIT – may it spread around the world It is your SOUL – let it fly and soar A subtle means of inspiration and spiritual flow that can guide you to your full potential Stomp clap the beat the beat clap, to the pound pound clap, the beat the beat CLAP! Stand up and let your wairua guide you! It is your SPIRIT – may it spread around the world It is your SOUL – let it fly and soar Filled with instinct and inspiration that can guide you to your full potential Enjoy official Maimoa Music songs and videos: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list… Watch more behind-the-scenes here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list… Subscribe for more: https://www.youtube.com/maimoamusic?s…
